U.S. nuclear weapons testing in the Pacific harmed more than U.S. territories

On the 61st anniversary of the first nuclear weapons test at the Nevada Test Site, a National Day of Remembrance for Downwinders marked the commemoration in the U.S. Companion legislation in the U.S. Senate would extend Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) coverage to the U.S. territory of Guam in the Pacific, downwind of U.S. nuclear weapons tests in the Pacific. Of course, other countries also are located downwind of U.S. nuclear weapons tests that were carried out in the Pacific, but no mention is made of them.
